environment is nothing to complain about. >> and what about the personal and commercial banking business, one of the biggest segments of what you guys do. what kind of demand trends are you seeing? >> well, again, there's clearly a slow down on the consumer side, but we're coming off, you know, double digit growth rates, and we're now moving into midsingle digit growth rates. part half is intended. our government has taken an approach to try to slow down consumer debt levels and it's having an impact which i say is a good thing. when you look at loan demand on the commercial side, it remains very strong. as i say, investment demand, deposit demand has been very good. so when you look at the overall platform, it grew at 7% this year -- or this past quarter over quarter, and so it's a slightly slower environment, but as i say not all that bad. >> i mean, we talk about the good quarter you just completed, but you've had a good year at rbc, but don't you feel like the easy money, to use that term, is done now? you guys are going to have to work a little harder to keep that growth rate going, don'

for lebanon's geostrategic environment. if the east and west agree that this must be a peace offul zone because there are important resources here, now actually moving forward on what's the economic value of this, the first thing is to figure out how to get it to market. the market is effectively europe. the original approach was or the plan was certainly to take it over land to turkey which would mean through syria as long as the war there is raging, you cannot do that. but that is the most cost effective i way. and i would indicate that part of the war for syria has to do with who's going to control the future of eastern mediterranean energy. the other way to do it which israel is exploring is whether to do it through lng, you know, whether cyprus and put it on ships or possibly from cyprus an undersea pipeline to turkey and then turkey gets it to market. so it gets into a lot of geopoll to tucks and relations. -- geopoll ticks and relations. if lebanon could get this to market and sell it, that would be -- well, the energy itself, the gas, if it's extracted, the first use of it is di

in the environment, who knows what the next eight months will bring. >> fair enough. candidate recruiting is everything. i remember various conversati s conversations. i know on one hand you've had people that you've had conversations with, that have said, you know what, talk to me in '16 when they think it will be more democrats, knowing democratic voters, hillary clinton at the top of the ticket, the shutdown, it got you a few candidates you didn't think you would get because of the environment change in that small period of time. but have you found that you still are struggling getting some people off the fence because they'd rather run in a presidential year? >> no, not at all. in fact, you went through the list. what unifies these top-tier candidates right now is the fact that they are problem solvers. you know, we didn't have to recruit many of them. they recruited themselves because they'd had it with the shutdowns, with republican recklessness and irresponsibility. they are problem solvers in battleground districts. this is our initial rollout. there will be more. we'll have a ve

in a challenging and changing environment requires us to prioritiertize and make difficult choices. >> secretary of defense, chuck hagel announced this week, a new five year budget for the pent began that could reshape the armed forces. one, army cuts. the u.s. army is already scheduled to drop from today's active duty force of 5 hundred 22,000 troops to 492,000 next year. serve secretary--secretary hagel wants to bring the total to 440,000 troops by the year 2019, six years from now. it will be the smallest sized u.s. army in 75 years, which brings us back to before world war i i. here is secretary hagel on why. >> we are no longer sizing the force. >> that is called army speak. you figure out it. two, marine corp. cuts to 182,000. three, army national guard cuts from # 3-0 hundred 55,000 to- -from 355,000 to 335,000. four,s special operations up from 66,000 today to 66,000 because the forces are uniquely suited for the most likely missions of the future. five, the loser, the a10 wart hog tank killer plane. cold war era spy plain, retired. drone, unmanned aircraft, they are hot. four, six, mili
and environment program. jacob, is there much in the way of economic leverage at the u.s. holds in russia? >> cared to the e.u. in my opinion no. you like in europe, for instance, you could move to targeted freezes because a lot of russian least similar to what the former ukraine cocaine leadership had in europe, they had money inside the e.u. and that could be frozen. they don't have as far as i know much money in the u.s. so no, there isn't much. >> how is russia enmeshed in the economy of e.u. and europe more broadly? >> indeed, but the point is that the current situation isn't purely economic. when speaking just about the economy, western countries, european countries are interested in keeping close ties to russia in importing russian gas and exporting technology and investing into huge russian potential. but at the moment since last week we have geopolitical military situation and it prevails on economic. that is why european leaders change their minds and their statement become more and more strict, and more and more firm against russian invasion into ukraine. >> certainly as valeri
environment requires us to requirementize and make difficult choices. some we must make now. >> despite the problems and the cost overruns, the military has no plans to scrap the f35. russia and china are developing fighters that will outgun and outfly the u.s. fleet. the question is whether the pentagon can make good on the promise of a jet that can tackle all threats in all conditions. >> the budget proposal calls for retiring the u2 spy plan for one controlled remotely. >> a pregnant woman apparently drove into the water, driving a minnie van with her three children, ages 10, 9 and 3. life guards and other beach goers rushed in. they pulled all for to safety before the van was submerged by the waves. one of the children told rescue areas, "mummy is trying to kill us, please help." the mother was incoherent, uncooperative. she is undergoing psychiatric evaluation, the children have been placed in protective custody. >> tex joons have gone to the polls. greg abbott peat out eight other candidates, facing off against wendy davis. she is the first female nom ni since ann richards in 1994
room in a portfolio for equities in an environment of low rates, even if they're going higher, they're going higher in a very slow fashion, if you want. growth is subdued but is still supportive. so that's overall an environment where you want to be in stocks. >> you know, you're the big picture type of investor, and the big picture for the u.s. market for the last four years has been all of the easy money policy from the federal reserve and plenty of people feel like that's why we are sitting at all-time highs right now. so why wouldn't it reverse itself as the fed begins to pull back on the easy money and even if it starts to raise interest rates sooner rather than later, why isn't this a time when the market starts to retreat, where are we still going higher now? >> well, i think although, you know, we're expecting a normalization of rates at some point in the future, we're not talking about something very quick or very drastic. and at the same time the world is healing from its traumatic experience, if you want, from the crisis. so all of this is supportive. now, actually, clear
, look, in a hyper partisan environment where he has to run for re-election, an issue like this can be polarized. any issue around race, as you know, wolf, sends people to their full rise corners. the last thing the president wants to do when he's running for re-election is to have a country more polarized. i think the beauty of this time now is you can have more risky conversations that are important for moving this country forward right now in his second term. so i'm thankful that he did. >> i want to play another excerpt from the president's powerful speech. cornell and don, both of you listen to this. >> no excuses. government and philanthropy, faith-based communities, we've got to help you knock down some of the barriers that you experience. that's what we're here for. but you've got responsibilities, too. and i know you can meet the challenge. many of you already are, if you make the effort. it may be hard, but you will have to reject the cynicism that the circumstances of your birth or societies injustices necessarily defines you and your future. it will take courage but you'

is that these policymakers are making decision necessary a very different growth environment that we've seen in many, many years. people are talking about how the economy is slow and is burdened with debt. there were a lot of questions about the financial sector and the health of it. and the government really doesn't have the same levers that past administrations have had in order to try to stimulate growth. so this is a back drop that they are facing at this time. the big question that people are have here going into this congress is just how will the slowing economy play with those reforms? the government has made big announcements at the end of the last week that we were going to make quite dramatic changes in a chinese contest. but we haven't really seen them walk the talk. that's what investors are going to want to see. they're going to want to see serious efforts in progress for the -- for not only the policies themselves, but also the pace of change. >> thanks so much, eunice. we'll watch for that later on this week. now, the u.s. is bracing for another massive late winter snowstorm, this time taki

"new york times," entertainment weekly, but from msnbc president phil griffin who said i met this kid for 20 minutes and i knew he had it and he should have his own perform. he had the lowest rated show on all of msnbc on monday and thol those ratings dropped throughout the week. what i would have done is put him on a show like the cycle, an opinion show, not as much heavy lifting for a co-host and give him his training wheels until you give him his own show for one hour which he's not done any broadcasting, local, community access or especially national. >> it's tough to be thrown into that chair. finally, msnbc let alec baldwin go a while back. he has cover story in "new y
in that environment. we have learned through a variety of approaches things that we probably didn't expect would be now in front of us this soon. for instance, what are the hereditary factors involved in this disease? it clearly runs in families. we have gone from knowing sort of one risk factor for the late onset type of alzheimer's disease to now depending on who you ask 19 or 20 that we have. that number is growing. in fact, it will be growing rapidly this coming year in part because of the fy-'14 appropriation because we're expanding our ability to do that kind of genetic analysis. we have gone from understanding that amyloid was a player to understanding a lot more about tau and to be able to look at pathways in the brain that are really quite complex and point to other sort of nodes in those pathways that are really important and might be drugable. we have gone from having a few clinical trials focused largely on advanced cases of alzheimer's to what you heard about today, where we now, because we can make the prediction about high risk, start the treatment earlier. just like people have o
're in this zero interest rate environment among the g-8 in a lot of ways people are stretching to always look for yield, right? and at this point in time there's not much alpha in the fixed income world so it's driving people to always look for that opportunity. i think selectively there are tremendous opportunities in emerging markets. but you have to be careful and do your due dildiligence. >> i imagine you have a number of etfs for that, right? >> we do. and we're very happy about our new etf, too. >> be well. >> pleasure. >>> we are a few days away from jobs friday and, of course, that means another opportunity for you to nail the number and win a prize. tweets your predictions for february nonfarm payrolls. use your handle @squawkstreet and if you win, you'll receive this, cnbc hat signed by the whole "squawk on the street" team. are we going to show a video of it? i guess not. we've got it behind us. we'll sign it right now. back here, yes. very nice. sara's going to put it on right now. >> no, it will ruin my hair. >> the ear flaps will work. >> the producer called it a flapper hat. is

with the veterans' bill. that's the simple truth. what i hope very much is in this extremely partisan environment the fact that we have a congress that is virtually dysfunctional. i would hope that on this issue of supporting those people who sacrifice so much for their country, supporting their families that we could for this moment, at least, rise above this absurd level of partisanship. and i hope that we will. i hope we can get some republican support for the bill. >> one final question, senator. assuming the iran sanctions part is stripped out and not part of the bill, there are some oh who are worried about the cost of these expanded benefits for u.s. military veterans, health benefits, education benefits, social service benefits, all sorts of other benefits. and they say the country can't afford that right now. to which your reply is? >> if you can't afford to take care of your veterans, don't go to war. these people are bearing the brunt of what war is about. we have a moral obligation to support them. >> simple answer to the point. senator, thanks very much for coming in. you'll keep us
